Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Let’s be honest, there’s never enough we can do to give our mothers the thanks they deserve for, you know, raising us. All those times they made our lunches in grade school, brought our PE gear to the school when we forgot it, put up with our petulant teenage years and gracefully paved the way for a successful and (relatively) independent future. So for the mother who deserves it all, here’s a list of a few gifts, treats and getaways to let her know just how much she means to you:

1. An Obakki Scarf

Nothing compares to a gift that gives back. An exquisite Obakki scarf is not only a wonderful gif to augment any outfit, but also supports clean water initiatives all across the Southern Sudanese region. For a mother who spent 18+ years of her life making sure you did okay, a gift that contributes to bettering the world is only fitting. Pick from a gorgeous range of colours here.

2. Something Sweet from Bel Café

Designs by Val Mother’s Day card from Bel Café paired with a gorgeous gift box of assorted confetti-coloured macarons is the perfect gift. Delicate, sweet and universally loved, there’s nothing more suiting for the mother figure in your life.

3. A Little Blue Box

If your mom has exquisite taste Tiffany & Co., as always, has you covered. For something simple and beautifully designed, opt for this Elsa Peretti Diamond Hoop bracelet in 18k gold with diamonds. Not sure what you’re looking for? Take a trip over the the stunning new Tiffany & Co. Burrard Street store. Between the intricate salons, artwork and signature spiral staircase, you definitely won’t find yourself short of inspiration.


4. Magnolia Hotel & Spa’s Victoria-to-a-TEA package

Take your mother on a weekend away to Magnolia Hotel & Spa. With the boutique hotel Victoria-to-a-TEA package, discover and enjoy all the tea-lightful opportunities the city has to offer. In partnership with Silk Road Tea, the package includes a one-night-stay in a beautiful guestroom, breakfast for two, a curated map of the city’s hot spots for tea, a Victoria tea flight at Silk Road and $10 to spend in the Boutique.


5. Something Comfortable (and Empowering) 

A mother is a force to be reckoned with and Strong As A Mother apparel gets straight to the point. Not much explanation needed for this one.


6. Take Her to Dinner

For an evening of quality time and incredible food, treat your mom to dinner at Vancouver’s Nightingale. With its eclectic menu designed with fresh ingredients, you’ll want to order everything and share.
